Rhodes, they facilitate a strong sense of community among the elders, their families, employee care partners and volunteers. They promote overall wellness through innovative programming, state-of-the-art therapy and rehabilitation services, and diverse activities and events. And A. G. Rhodes has a strong reputation for the exceptional care that they provide and have provided for 115 years.

Each month Pebble Tossers has a project at A.G. Rhodes. Volunteers participate in various activities with the residents including reading books, playing games, outside activities and making crafts. This is a great event for families, kids and teens.

Get Ready For Halloween

Open Project for October -

enAble of Georgia and Georgia Community Support and Solutions (GCSS) began working together in partnership in 2014, joining two extraordinary groups with the same mission to provide quality support to people with developmental disabilities. The new name, InCommunity, describes their mission as partners, dedicated to enriching and sustaining the lives of individuals who have disabilities, their families and their communities.

For this project, volunteers will be decorating for Halloween at Incommunity's Day Program Facility. This will be a festive project. Since we will not be working with the individuals that attend InCommunity for our decorating project, all ages are welcome to participate.

This is an Open Project and we invite NonPebble Tossers members to join us for this project. Click here to register as a nonmember.
